God of War : Ragnarok
Yes you read that correctly, God of War 2 : Ragnorak is indeed coming and it’s set after the previous game God Of War where we once again follow the story of Kratos that he laid out for himself.
Not much information has been announced about the game except a goosebump inducing teaser which showcases a Omega symbol with runes carved into. One can speculate what might happen as Ragnorak is a series of events that brings about the world’s end and the death of all the Norse Gods although we don’t know whether this will take place in the game itself.
The sequel like many other upcoming titles will be released in 2021 with no specific date announced alongside the fact that it’ll be a PS5 exclusive.
